THE FARM AT CAPE KIDNAPPERS, HAWKE'S BAY, NEW ZEALAND
A sister property to Kauri Cliffs in the Bay of Islands and Matakauri Lodge, Queenstown, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers is one of the world’s extraordinary top luxury destinations, set on a 6,000 acre sheep and cattle farm with breathtaking views over the Pacific in the Hawke’s Bay wine region. With just 24 ultra-comfortable and spacious “cottage” suites and a four bedroom “Owner’s Cottage”, all with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, a stay at the Relais & Chateaux Cape Kidnappers is truly “farm luxe” at its best. This stunning Lodge exterior resembles a cluster of farm buildings and exudes great character, the interior giving way to beautifully appointed and graciously scaled lounge and dining rooms, full of natural light and perfectly designed to capture the unparalleled views.
Food and wine are highlights of any visit here. Conde Nast Traveller Magazine UK listed The Farm at Cape Kidnappers within its 2011 Gold List and named it Best for Food among an outstanding line-up of worldwide luxury hotels. The Farm offers gourmet à la carte dining in a number of unique lodge locations and there is also a wine tasting room and cellar showcasing top wines from New Zealand and beyond.
The Tom Doak designed Cape Kidnappers Golf Course has international status as a “must play” course, voted 27th in the world by Golf Magazine. Non-golfers and golfers alike can take advantage of Hawke’s Bay’s fishing, beaches, arts and crafts, and fantastic wineries, while the farm property lends itself to farm tours, spectacular hikes, gourmet picnics plus kiwi discovery walks and gannet safaris. A full-service luxury spa where you can have a facial or massage while gazing out across some stunning farm landscape to the Pacific Ocean is a highlight.
